Polyatomic Ion Bingo!
Ionic Bonding Unit
Polyatomic Ion Bingo! - Students will be able to…
• Recognize Polyatomic Ion Names & Formulas.
Polyatomic Ion WS - Students will be able to…
• Determine the ion name and ion formula for polyatomic ions and regular ions.
• Determine the number of atoms of each element present and the charge when given a polyatomic ion formula.
• Know that most polyatomic ions are anions, but ammonium is a cation.
• Recognize the name endings of polyatomic ions to be ‘ate’, ‘ite’, ‘ide’, and ‘ium’.
• Determine the difference between polyatomic ions containing the prefix ‘bi’.
• Determine the difference between polyatomic ions with an ‘ate’ and ‘ite’ ending.
• Polyatomic Ion Lists
• Polyatomic Ion WS
• Polyatomic Ion WS – KEY
• Polyatomic Ion Formulas – Bingo Cards #1-36
• Polyatomic Ion Names – Bingo Cards #1-36
• Identifying Polyatomic Formulas – Bingo (located in PowerPoint presentation)

***Zip-file containing 1 PDF document and 2 PowerPoint Presentations. (The PDF document cannot be edited.)
Additional Required Materials:
(These items are not included in the purchase.)
• Projector (to project PowerPoint presentation)
• Beans (as markers for Bingo)
• Optional: Cardstock & Lamination of Bingo Cards
• Periodic Table per student (required for WS)
• Print Bingo Cards (lamination optional). Cut-out bingo cards (Two bingo cards are located on each page. Cut each page in half.).
• “Polyatomic Ion Lists”
o Print a “Polyatomic Ion List” for students. This document contains three pages of “Polyatomic Ion Lists”. The first page contains a list of the polyatomic ions organized alphabetically and a list organized by ion families. The second page contains two lists organized alphabetically. This page can be printed and cut in half. Each student will have a half-sheet of paper with the ion list. The third page of polyatomic ions contains two lists organized by ion families. This page can be printed and cut in half. Each student will have a half-sheet of papers with the ion list.
• “Polyatomic Ion WS”
o Students will investigate the “Polyatomic Ion List” as they answer the WS questions.
• Polyatomic Ion Bingo!
o The Bingo Cards can be printed on cardstock and laminated (optional). OR The Bingo Cards can be printed on regular paper.
o Instead of using beans, students can mark their Bingo cards using a marker. If the Bingo Cards have been laminated, students can use dry-erase markers to mark the Bingo Cards.
o Present the polyatomic ions through a PowerPoint presentation and have students mark their Bingo Cards. First, student to get 5 spaces in a row, column, or diagonal wins. Optional: Continue playing until 3 winners have been found. Then, restart the game.
Use the “Identifying Polyatomic Formulas” PowerPoint with the “Polyatomic Ion Formulas – Bingo Cards”. Students will see names of polyatomic ions through the PowerPoint slides and will then determine the correct polyatomic formula to mark on the bingo card.
Use the “Identifying Polyatomic Names” PowerPoint with the “Polyatomic Ion Names – Bingo Cards”. Students will see formulas of polyatomic ions through the PowerPoint slides and will then determine the correct polyatomic name to mark on the bingo card.
To continue playing Bingo, click and drag PowerPoint slides to mix-up polyatomic ions.
Recommend: For the first few Bingo games, allow students to use the “Polyatomic Ion List”. After a few games, ask students to play without using the list. After each bingo round, corresponding names and formulas from that game to help students remember and solidify polyatomic names/formulas.
